Quite simple. You can apply a list method to a list object by actually
getting the list object. You can't call a list method on a query
object or a Rep object.

Rep() = Rep object
Rep.all() = Query object
list(Rep.all()) = List of Rep objects.
list(Rep.all())[0] = A single Rep object
list(Rep.all())[0].replist = A list

So once you have that last step, you have a list. Which you can
manipulate like any other Python list.
Once you have the list, you can call all them
